I loved this camera when I first bought it but I realized after a while that the pictures were not a good as I thought they should have been. It's a point and shoot so you will not get the best quality. The battery lasts a very long time. The LCD screen is nice. It was the biggest screen around when I was shopping for a p and S digi cam. The start up is very fast, the battery life is long and the screen is nice size and good macro pics. The pic quality is poor. Takes a bad low light ...

This is a great little camera, my second digital. Large LCD screen, easy to use menu and best of all, it is really compact. Great photos and features for such a compact camera. Good battery Life Problems: I dont like the dock you need to carry around to recharge the battery - a little bulky does not come with a cable to link direct to the pc, you need to use the dock thing. have not had success with low light indoor photos (parties, weddings etc)

I have owned 3 digital cameras in the past 5 years a Toshiba PDR-M60 A Minolta E223 now a Casio Z40, the Z40 is a very good pocket camera, it is fast, takes pretty good pictures for its size, comparing it to my past camera's its a Rolls Royce! there is some grain in the picture when taking in low light as the camera tries to compensate by adjusting the ISO automatically to 200 or 400 if you set it manually to 100 the pictures in low light are very good. The battery life is unbelievable!, if ...

I hesitated some while before buying the Z40 but was seduced by the fantastic styling (especially in black), size and user friendly facilities. I already have a Canon G5 but need something to slip in the top pocket for holidays. Granted the image quality isn't as good but I wouldn't expect it to be. Nonetheless I find the images (especially on ISO 50)pretty amazing - better by far than my 1938 Leica IIIb and that was considered state of the art 60 years ago. It is easy to get camera ...

Bought only for snapshots. Was well impressed with size, construction and all its features for the price. Image quality is not so good ( grainy ) at ISO200 and above and Auto. I locked it at ISO100 and images are much better. Still some noise in dark areas.

I like Z-40 for its size, weight, build quality, logic layout, large screen, fast start-up, rapid shooting speed (mine is a black one made in Japan). however, the image quality is rather disappointing and only suitable for "snapshot" for lacking of sharpness and being bluish. I also own Casio QV-R51 and Pentax S40. Actually, Z-40 and S40 both use the same Pentax Lens assembly, but S40 turned out to be much better in sharpness and color saturation. I suppose Casio did not achieve the ...

Feature rich, but image quality was really disappointing. Images seems over-saturated and grainy (pixelated). I have an older Casio QV3000EX that I used as a comparison (am looking to replace it) but the EX-Z40 images couldn't come close to the quality or simple ease of use of the QV3000EX. Charger/docking station is great. For the average amateur photographer, family picnic shots, etc, this camera would probably be fine - I'm just nit-picky when it comes to the actual photo. Problems: Other ...

I've been playing with my new Z40 and I'm getting mixed results with photo quality (read sharpness). The main reason I have found for poor quality is camera shake. This is a very small, very light camera. I'ts all too easy to "snap" a picture. This is particularly important when taking interior flash pictures. Remember that the shutter speed is only 1/60. Like ANY camera it has to be held steady to perform up to its optical maximum
